About Athenee Palace Hilton Bucharest Hotel


For a taste of old-world Romanian glitz, this prestigious Hilton property offers more than just the regular 5-star services. As far as multi-national hotels go, they rarely rank amongst the world's most unique or historic, which is where the Athenee Palace Hilton Bucharest Hotel breaks the mold. From the massive marble columns in the lobby to the tiffany glass dome in the ballroom, this supposed former KGB headquarters immerses guests in the type of luxury not often associated with Romania. In terms of location, the property is right on Republic Square, next to the Opera House in the city center, from which all things in Bucharest are easy to find either on foot or by bus and tram. Dining on-site happens in several areas, and a pastry in Le Bistrot with views of the Royal Palace is a must.

Staff by far not Hilton!
The hotel ad the city are superb but the staff is not trained for Hilton. They do not answer emails. Takes them days to reply. I specifically requested a room with balcony ahead of time via email and they did not give me one, even though the room description said balcony/terrace. Disappointing!

Just Perfect!
This Hilton is so well managed it should be a model for students of hospitality. Beginning with the hotel's location in the cultural center and ending with the savvy and helpful staff, this Hilton is top notch.

Fascinating place!
Location, Quality, Heritage
Fantastic hotel - flawness from check in to check out. A stay in the Executive floors is worth it not least for free drinks on the excellent terrace overlooking Revolution Square and the Athenaeum.

The room we had was really a good large size compared to most city-based European hotels we've been to. The F&B staff were extremely friendly too. We took the executive facilities and it was superb!
